Hillary Clinton Hammers Republicans For Focus On Benghazi Transparency Complaints

“We had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided to go kill some Americans? At this point what difference does it make?”

WASHINGTON — Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Wednesday ripped into Republicans for accusing the Obama administration of misleading them in the wake of the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, charging it was inappropriate given the deaths of American citizens.

Clinton became livid during an exchange with Sen. Ron Johnson in which the conservative Republican repeatedly accused the White House of misleading the administration.

At one point, Clinton raised her voice and angrily interrupted Johnson to denounce the GOP's focus on what they were told by the administration rather than on the deaths of four Americans.

"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided to go kill some Americans? At this point what difference does it make senator?" Clinton said angrily.

6. Hey, we gave you Tammy Baldwin

Wisconsin voters are batting .500

And have you ever noticed that when somebody says the words, "With all due respect," they're about to let some shit fly?

7. Yes you have Tammy Baldwin,


Wisconsin rocks voters are working so hard, you've been doing an incredible job.
I'm still grieving over the loss of Feinglod, seeing POS Johnson brings it all back. Knew Hillary could handle these clowns, she hit backs where it hurts.

8. I'm sure Johnson will be one-and-done

He benefitted from it being an off-year election AND a year when the Tea Party was still ascending. 2016 will be a presidential election year, and if the current GOP is any indication, they're be substantially weaker.

10. I don't know.

Russ may decide that private life is pretty appealing. Can't say as I would blame him.

I'm sure there are a number of Democrats willing to take a shot at RoJo.
